Each week we will take time to share celebrations, embrace silence, and reflect on what we learn. We will explore one topic each week.

My Sacred Circles are offered to women 50+ who are seeking new ways
to claim and celebrate their wisdom, in the company of other wise women.
In all circles we will read poetry, listen to music; practice mindfulness through guided meditation, written exercises and a bit of homework. Each session will begin with Celebration and conclude with Discovery & Intention.
Future Circle Topics
New circle ideas are always percolating in my brain; here are a few for your consideration. Let me know if something here sparks an interest for you.
Maiden, Mother, Matriarch and Crone are four major Feminine Archetypes that we will explore in this 4-week journey. We will use Jean Shinoda-Bolen’s book “Goddesses in Older Women; how to be a juicy crone” as a guide. We will explore the many aspects of the Crone, like Wrath, Laughter, Compassion and Wisdom; we will also have the opportunity to discover and share our unique and personal Goddess Archetypes.
The Feminine Face of God
What do you see and feel if I say “God?” Now, what do you see and feel when I say “The Feminine Face of God?” What if God is a woman and you could more easily identify with her? In this 4-week class, we will explore the feminine aspects of God, and of Jesus, and in ourselves. Holy Wisdom, or Hagia (aye-ya) Sophia, is one aspect of the divine feminine that we will discuss.
